We have recently taken on a client and our predecessors filed the RTI for annual salary due to be paid on 31st March on 6th March as part of their tidying up. This was good house-keeping and were grateful for them tying off the loose end; and all before the lockdown announcement.
On the face of it there was an RTI report filed before 19th March therefore the company is entitled to furlough payments. The HMRC furlough page says no employees on PAYE on the 19th! Anybody else seen this? Or is the qualification more nuanced than first glance suggests?
